Painstakingly developed in the company’s New Orleans studios for the past three years, the JT Nessbitt-designed motorbike is finally ready to meet the public.

Already considered one of the finest modern examples of motorcycle design, the Legacy boasts features never before seen on a production two wheeler, such as carbon-composite blades that allow rake and rail adjustment.

Built from titanium, leather, mahogany and carbon fiber, the bike also boasts one of the most potent four-cylinder engines ever bestowed on a 'normal' bike -- a 300bhp, supercharged 1650cc unit built by US company Montus.

And rather than being part of a static display, when the Goodwood Festival of Speed gets under way on June 25, visitors wil get to see the Legacy take on the event’s iconic hill climb track.
